    Hi Ravi,
    I'll look out for steps to reproduce and let you know if I spot a pattern here.
    It's not to do with how they're sorted. Its that sometimes files I've previously had open simply don't appear. This always happens after Illustrator has crashed (not infrequently), but it also happens (not infrequently) after shutting down correctly. I've seen the issue multiple times accross multiple installs of multiple recent versions of Illustrator.

    I also get this on Windows 10.
    I had it on 23.1 and now also on 25.0.1

    Manuel - I'm not holding out any hope whatever of Adobe paying attention to this. As far as they're concerned it's a trivial matter to make search and select scripts. In fact, at this stage, I'd consider it a bit of a piss-take if they were to address this feature before addressing the more fundamental problems with accessing features through the document object model. For instance, any appearance settings on an object beyond a single stroke and a single fill are inaccessible (including extra strokes and fills, all effects and arrowheads). Graphic styles are only half implimented generally, and are useless via scripting. And so on...

    At least with features like this we can sort ourselves out :|

    Jotham - it really isn't any help for the complexity of compositions I work on. There's Select/Object/All Text Objects but that's not much help either... I need much more configurable selection parameters than either of these presently allow, particularly for type (though other objects and variable as well).
    Now than they've fixed the script/action bug in Illustrator 2018 I can at least bind a key for an action that runs a script to select same typeface and size...

    General slowness on using Illustrator on Mac is one of the major issues reported in this thread. Illustrator team made significant progress in replacing Illustrator’s GPU rendering engine from OpenGL to macOS Native Metal Rendering Engine – https://developer.apple.com/metal/.
    We have observed common operations like Zoom, Pan, and rendering operations are now smoother in cases where it was sluggish as reported in this thread. We urge Mac users to try the Illustrator Beta build with Metal support and share your feedback.
    Please note, this may not address other performance issues reported in this thread not related to rendering like File Save, Export, or slowness in any particular feature.

    This build is available in Illustrator Prerelease Download Section – https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/85A6F544-2705-49BD-8314-DD549C6A1713

    • Adobe Illustrator is the primary reason for my CC subscription.
    • The only feature missing from Affinity Designer, which stops me cancelling my CC subscription, is scripting support.
    • As soon as Affinity Designer opens up support for automation, I foresee customers in my position leaving Adobe CC in droves.

    Seems like a burning platform to me.

    Gradients also particuarly snarled up

    Wow... thank you, at last.

    I thought it was just me who found it insane to have such a dangerous 'gotcha' hidden right in the middle of everyone's every day working path!

    And yeah, save us some clicks!

    "a disgrace that this can happen in a program that’s over 30 years old." That applies to dozens upon dozens of these feature requests and bug reports. This. Is. Adobe Illustrator.

    @Ankit goyal(Illustrator Team)

    I've attempted to help you narrow down the cause - please see the attached png for a visual explanation of the tests and results for situations that trigger this error.

    The issue is triggered by *any* non standard appearance on a hidden object on a layer above the one being exported. By "non standard", I mean anything other than a single stroke and a single fill. This includes all effects, arrow heads, additional strokes and fills.

    It's interesting to note that all the things (I've tested so far) which trigger this issue (in AI 24 and 25) are also all things which are inaccessible via the scripting API.

    I mean, I do know that to change 72ppi to 300ppi I just scale by 24%, and I've got an action to do that - but it's still an extra unecessary click every single time I place a raster item - even if I had any space remaining on my F keys for it to be shortcut!

    If you're talking about raster effects, then I think the specific feature you're asking for might be a custom field in 'Document Raster Effect settings'.

    Yes. Since the behaviour is so different, and that difference can be vital if, for example, you're handling layers and groups differently in an asset export script. Not being able to tell the difference at a glance in the layers pannel is a big PITA.

    It turns out this is a general issue with exporting PNG in versions 24 and after. You can replicate it with Export As, Export for Screens, and Save for Web.

    Just save a file with two objects in different locations, hide one of the objects and export a PNG.

    For expected behaviour, follow the above steps in 23.1. Do it in 24.3 and 25.0 to see the problem.
